Today we’d like to introduce you to Kris Mejia.
Kris, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Sure! Mom Jeans & Mimosas was started as a visual journal of sorts. When my kids would nap, I’d escape to my newest Instyle mag, try on all my fun (off-duty Mom) clothes and play with my newest makeup products. This much needed “me-time” became more than a hobby especially when I’d share stories about my personal Mom struggles. After some time, my blog developed into a social space for Mom’s alike to find their balance. Whether it’s doing laundry on a Tuesday or dressing up for a night out, we all have a unique story that doesn’t just need to be told, it deserves to be toasted!
Has it been a smooth road?
Nothing worth anything comes easy. That’s the case when growing a blog. Although I never gave any thought to quitting, I do have days where I’m challenged, stressed and even let down. In one such instance, I had given someone permission to work on my my previous site resulting in loosing my rights to it all together. After mourning the loss of that page came the creation of my current site. And it’s safe to say, I won’t be making that mistake again! Not to mention, I’m a full time Mom which means, I work when I can which is possibly the most challenging part of being a creator.
So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Mom Jeans & Mimosas story. Tell us more about the business.
I am the owner and content creator of Mom Jeans & Mimosas. Managing a blog is no small task. To stay relevant as a blogger, you should be posting regularly so I set working hours to complete deadlines on time. During those hours, I set up my calendar with projects, manage my emails, set up shoots (either my husband or I as the photographer) promote content via social media, take online classes, edit batches of photos, write personal stories and that’s just online! Sometimes, my presence is required at events which is a fun way to extend your reach to people in real life! I’m most proud of my photography and staying true to who I am is important! I enjoy laughing at myself and find it sets me apart because we are uniquely ourselves and that’s the only person no ones else can be!
How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
Being an Angelino has more perks than any city but I suppose, I’m biased because all I have to compare it to is Sacramento, CA where I’m from. Living here allows me to showcase our beloved city, embrace the culture and explore all while sharing it with the world. Is there really anything to dislike about LA besides the 405 freeway?
